The goal of the AVB is to CONNECT our PAST and PRESENT military veterans to our nation’s next generation and FUTURE leaders of America while keeping them true to the Red, White, & Blue. It will also serve and provide veterans of “ALL” the Armed Forces the opportunity to participate in a customary annual event comparable to those of our active service components. The most common denominator that the AVB Founders discovered was that once service members’ transitioned out of their respective branches of service, they experienced a disconnection to these types of traditional comradeship events. Yet, despite of this disconnection many find themselves living out the core values and way of life, as “civilians”, post their active service contribution.

Documentation of The Veterans Are Foundation's (originally formed as Veterans Aide Foundation) certification as a registered 501(c)3 public charity can be found on the IRS website.  The change in our name came about after finding we had to clarify that the word "Aide" was spelled with an "e" on way too many occasions. We are excited about our plans and you should be too.  The VAF is about to do great things for our country and our Heroes of Service. 

Any contribution that you make to VAF is FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE up to the legal limits of the law!


Our Heroes

They protect us and our freedoms. Military Veterans and First Responders (Police - Fire & Rescue - EMS) are our “Heroes of Service”.
